Question I know has been asked before so my appologies.
Say you have 20% points back on beef. you grab $40 worth of steaks and nothing else and then redeem in same transaction (40$) do you still get back the points even though you paid nothing? ( I always assume you didnt so got pc giftcards but now since that stopped..)
I bought $62 and paid $60 in points and still earned all of my 20% offers (I did three of those and one points per item offer and got them all) on Monday.

Got a whole bunch of the same offers as last week but 10% in points instead of 20%.....maybe they are scaling back. Also funny that I got a ton of offers and my wife only got 6.

Luck of the draw. The only 10% items I got were the Hellmann's/Knorr promos. And I got a 10k on $100 too.

I keep getting an offer for watermelon (because nothing says spring like watermelon?) and I haven't bought one in a year. Sometimes the recommendations are loopy.

I've started taking the advice of canceling the ones I don't want that much. Love the few times I've had 20% off various types of meat

Anyone with PC WE MC notice their offers getting worse after getting the credit card?

Someone mentioned this happened to them upthread.

I have it and have never noticed my offers getting worse. The offers are targeted, so while possible they target the mastercard users differently it is also just as likely there are other reasons you feel your offers are poorer.

I got an offer of 7500pts for every $75... valid for the next 3 days. Of course, two of those days are Easter and Good Friday...

Lucky...I could have used that offer this weekend. I did finally get another gas offer though (5K points for $40 purchase).

Do they sell any decent cameras at Superstore? I have 3000 when you spend $30 and 1000 when you spend $5 on electronics offers.

I just spoke with a store manager about PC+ redemptions for gift cards. He says the stores have conference calls every week. Every week they raise the issue of the suspension of redemptions for GCs. Every week PC stalls and says they're working on it. His opinion is that the suspension will be permanent. That would piss me off royally.

I don't know what we can do to change PC's opinion. Launch an e-mail campaign? See if we can get some traction in the media (perhaps by turning this into the next Air Miles)?
She might help you to redeem PC points for gift cards too:

Same here. Disappointed since the offers seemed to be a bit more generous during the past couple of weeks.

I remember in the past I would get PC Points for an offer even if I was a few pennies below the threshold. For example if the offer was 200 points for every $1 spent on cucumbers I would get the points even if the cucumbers were $0.97 or $0.98. This no longer seems to be true. Has anyone else noticed this? Another one that I used to get was 400 pts for every $2 spent on Goldfish that I would still get if I spent $1.97.

12 days ago I got 10 units of points on a 100/$1 offer by purchasing a 9.98 item
So YMMV on the rounding
